You have 4.10's you'll be fine as long as you dont thrash it. My buddy tows a 32' triple axle weighing a solid 18k lbs, and thats with a bone stock 7.3 Superduty.

Get yourself a nice trans fluid cooler (<$80)and a trans temp guage. With the mods you have done, you wont hurt anything because of power slipping it.

These trucks were built to tow and do a great job as long as you use common sense.
